My favourite thing about summer is having friends or family over and enjoying those endless days together. We usually chill out in the garden and as soon as it gets cooler I start prepping dinner. Recently, though I’ve been – frankly – bored with cooking. I’m out of ideas and just the thought of buying groceries for 5+ people – not to mention lugging those heavy bags home – gives me a headache.
But then my best friend Val “ordered” me to try HelloFresh. It makes her mum-life so much easier and saves her loads of time in the kitchen. I don’t have kids but I thought their meal kit delivery service might make it easier to have friends over.
When I hopped on the HelloFresh site and browsed their menu, I couldn’t believe that they have 33+ fresh recipes to choose from every single week. There are mouth-watering dishes like Spiced Chicken & Tex-Mex Brown Rice Bowl and Moroccan Beef Rump & Sesame Veggie Fries – fabulous for a bbq! And tons of delicious pasta dishes – toss in a bottle or two of Montepulciano and voilà! An unforgettable Italian dinner night. And ace veggie options for my vegetarian friends like Chermoula White Bean, Capsicum & Kale Soup. From just $5.00 per portion, I just had to sign up.
When my HelloFresh box arrived, I was delighted that the ingredients of the meals were conveniently bagged together by recipe in brown paper bags. Any cold ingredients were also kept in a paper cool bag that I could recycle in my yellow bin, too.
The following day I invited some mates over. Since they wanted to try HelloFresh as well, we decided to throw a bit of a garden party. We had so much fun grilling herby beef burgers and steaks with beers.
HelloFresh’s easy-to-follow recipe cards will walk you through the prepping, the cooking, and the plating. Tried and tested by in-house chefs, their Quick & Easy recipes can be ready in as little as 20 minutes. Cooking dinner has never been easier!
My favourites are HelloFresh’s Fresh & Fast options – done in as little as a few minutes – and their One-Pot dishes make clean-up a breeze. All the meals I had so far tasted delicious. I’m so happy with their service.
Thanks to HelloFresh, I’m ready for those summer nights with friends and family. And since their flexible subscription allows me to skip, pause or opt out at anytime, I never stress about being billed on those weeks when I kick back and no one comes over.
Thinking about throwing a brilliant summertime soiree? HelloFresh is for you!
